- Webster also mentioned that they’re “not making calls” at this point in time.
It’s clear that Tennessee is willing to listen to offers for Britt, but it’s just hard to expect a team to step up and offer draft compensation for a player who will be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season. Britt is also dealing with some injuries this season and has been largely ineffective on the field.
- Schefter adds that the team is not actively shopping him however.
Britt is currently dealing with multiple injures and his status for Week 4 is questionable. In three games this season, Britt has tallied just five receptions for 43 yards receiving. Add in the fact that he’ll be an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season and it’s likely that the best Tennessee can get for him is late-round pick.
Multiple teams could use help at receiver, but it’s hard to say what they’re getting with Britt at this point. We’ll have more as the news is available.
- Wyatt adds that he’s “skeptical they’d be able to get much for [Britt].“
Britt’s stock has dropped considerably since his breakout 2010 season. He’s had multiple off-the-field issues in the past few years and hasn’t been able to produce for the Titans this season. So far, he has just five receptions for 43 yards on the season. Add in the fact that he’s in the final year of his contract, and it’s unlikely that Tennessee would be able to recoup any more than late-round pick for him.
Reports from earlier today indicated that the Lions are making calls to teams around the league regarding available receivers. With Britt’s stock so low right now, he could be a decent buy-low option for a team like the Lions.
The 49ers, Eagles, Panthers and Patriots could also use some help at receiver, so we’ll have to see if interest in Britt picks up in the coming weeks.
